Every week National Lottery players raise more than £30 million which goes towards funding good causes across the UK. Each time you play you help make the UK a better place, and the Lottery want to say thank you!

Since 1994, more than £47 billion has been raised for good causes. Due to this support, good cause projects in the arts, community, film heritage and sport are able to make a huge difference in their local communities.

For making their work possible, National Lottery funded projects across the UK want to say #ThanksToYou to the National Lottery players by offering free entry or other special offers this National Lottery Open Week!

The idea is simple: anyone who visits a National Lottery supported project and shows a National Lottery ticket, Instant Win Game, or scratchcard (physical or digital) between 18th and 26th March 2023 is able to take up a special offer.

We want to be really clear that it’s the support of National Lottery players who help fantastic projects and organisations to continue to make a difference to people and communities – and National Lottery Open Week is the perfect way to say #ThanksToYou.

From free entry into some of the UK’s most loved museums and heritage sites, to behind the scenes tours of world class sporting venues, a complimentary gift or cup of tea and cake, or setting aside tickets to a sold-out theatre performance, there are so many ways for everyone to say #ThanksToYou this National Lottery Open Week. This is a great opportunity to highlight the work you’re doing.

You can get full terms and conditions HERE, but please check the venue listings for dates, times and other terms and conditions.
